• A well designed campus environment contributes significantly to the learning, working and social
experiences for users and visitors.
• Another important benefit of an attractive campus is its positive impact in recruitment. And also creating
positive energy.
• Microclimate enhancement
• Unique and inspiring space to work

Site layout
• a) Clustering of development within the campus core and loop road is encouraged to
promote workability, provide a variety of usable open spaces, and preserve perimeter
lands for future potential opportunities.
• b) The campus should look for opportunities to establish vehicular and pedestrian
connections with adjacent properties to encourage convenience, amenities, and
positive synergies for its end user.
• c) Develop a comprehensive network of varied open spaces that facilitate both formal
and informal interactions.
• d) Design human-scaled spaces with spatial sensibilities that relate to the mass,
proportion, and size of surrounding buildings.
• e) Make the campus inviting and transparent with a strong sense of arrival.
Pedestrian and Public Spaces
• a) Pedestrian-friendly design elements should be incorporated throughout the campus,
including its surrounding parking lots and street crossings. Varying scales of plazas, formal
and informal gathering spaces, and amenities catering towards pedestrians are encouraged
to facilitate spontaneous interactions and a sense of community.
• b) Pedestrian paths should be safe, attractive, and inviting and should provide direct
connections between places.
• c) Informal, visible, and accessible plazas, courtyards, and outdoor gathering areas should
be provided in between buildings.
• d) All street furniture (including benches, lighting, bollards, and waste receptacles) should
be consistent and complementary with the architectural style and quality of the campus
• e) Water features are encouraged in visually prominent and ―special ―locations as they
contribute to campus character and its sustainability.
• f) Sculptural elements are encouraged in appropriate public areas as they enhance the
building and site design and also work as a memory point.
Gateways and Entrances
a) Entry features may include vertical elements,
architectural details, and artistic statements as
appropriate to the scale and architectural style of
the adjacent buildings.
b) Features should be appropriately scaled, well
designed, and constructed of high-quality
materials (such as natural stone or architectural
c) Treatment of the gateway must distinguish its
prominence from other entrances.

Gateways and Entrances

a) Entry features may include vertical elements, architectural details, and
artistic statements as appropriate to the scale and architectural style of the
adjacent buildings.
b) Features should be appropriately scaled, well designed, and constructed
of high-quality materials (such as natural stone or architectural metals)
c) Treatment of the gateway must distinguish its prominence from other
• Proper orientation
• a) Proper orientation of buildings in relation to the sun can have a
significant impact on a building’s energy use. The ideal orientation
is on an east-west axis with rectangular proportion of 1(east-west)
to between 1.5 and 2 (north south)
• b) Visual connection to the exterior for building occupants should be
a core design element for future projects. On average, south facing
glass should be 10-25% of the floor area of each building.
• c) Maximize south-facing glazing with sun screens can reduce solar
heat gain and increase day lighting and glare control.
• d) The use of skylights (e.g. adjustable, conventional or tubular),
view windows, clerestories, light shelves and controlled lighting all
contribute positively. The Harvesting of solar energy through
photovoltaics can help the campus to achieve this goal. These can
be utilized integrally in shade structures, as glazing screens, or be
self supported on the rooftops of future buildings and parking lots
located throughout the campus.
• The key to minimising construction costs on a sloping site is to reduce the amount of
earthworks required to level the site through cut
• and fill and to minimise the number of engineered retaining walls. This can be
achieved by adopting a house design that suits your
• sloping site.
• Some cut and fill on sloping sites may be unavoidable, but the visual, structural and
drainage impacts can be mitigated by designing
• the house to step with the landscape and minimise the need for extensive
Matching building design to suit the degree of slope
Flat to slightly sloping sites
Single slab on ground construction is only suitable for a site
slope up to seven per cent. Slopes between seven and 10
per cent, should accommodate some level change within the
building footprint.
• Moderate slope
• For slopes between seven and 20 per cent, stepping two or
• more slabs or using part slab/part post or beam construction
• would be suitable to handle the slope. Single slab on ground
• construction is not recommended.

Steep slope
For slopes between 20 and 33 per cent, post and beam
construction should be used which steps with the site. This may
include a lower part level with a concrete slab. Single slab on
ground construction should not be used.

Extreme slope
For slopes more than 33 per cent, suspended or pole
construction techniques are required. This degree of slope is
more suited to a downslope configuration. Driveway access is
generally too difficult on steep upslope lots which require large
batters/retaining walls and sometimes a curving driveway.
Dealing with surface and sub-surface drainage
Good design will minimise future surface and sub-surface
drainage and maintenance problems common to building
on a sloping site. Understanding the effects of water on your
site in both dry and wet seasons can be challenging. Surface
water can usually be diverted away from the building by a
combination of grading, swales (shallow ditches), detention
tanks and stormwater pits which are directed to a legal point
of stormwater discharge. Surface water must be disposed of
in a way that avoids the likelihood of damage or nuisance to
any adjoining property. If it is not well treated, erosion can be
a problem on disturbed areas of the site.
